Mark Steyn Receives the Inaugural George Jonas Award: Full Speech Video

So, unfortunately I wasn't able to attend this incredible event honouring the most deserving individual I could possibly imagine-Mark Steyn (the event was on a Friday night so it was impossible for a Jewy Jew like me to attend). It truly pained me not to be able to be there in person, but I'm sure that Mark Steyn and his people and team know that I was with them in spirit and that I am so delighted to finally be able to hear the entire speech plus the wonderful introduction by Lord Conrad Black.

I love this video so much, I'm not through the whole thing but so far, I'm absolutely mesmerized. I love the insight on writing at the beginning that Mark learned from George Jonas (take a vignette from the past, something from the present and something that looks to the future), and I love how he is ribbing Andrew Coyne and Jon Kay (ha!).

I know I joke a lot about being a SteynFrau and spend a little bit more time than is probably normal (but honestly, being 'normal' is highly overrated anyway) talking about Mark Steyn's sartorial flare (PS: LOVELY SUIT, BEAUTIFUL GREEN TIE, love this with the blue plaid pocket square FOR REAL AND NOT FOR JOKING-JUST GREAT!) and his works and himself in general, but there is some very serious thought behind my schtick, it's not all just for laughs.

I'm well aware THANKYOUVERYMUCH that I have no particular authority to recognize prophets, actually zero authority on this except being a legend in my own mind, but I do spend a lot of time thinking about wisdom, human nature, and about modern prophets. I think there's a pretty broad range of humans that could be prophets-politicians, public intellectuals, writers, artists, etc...but there's obviously no Central Prophet Recognition Agency nowadays. People who declare themselves prophets are usually, without fail, kooks.

But I have a short list of formidable humans that I think are prophets for various reasons-and remember, prophets were prophets-they got messages and shared wisdom and insight-they weren't magicians or gods-just regular humans, often incredibly flawed with unique strengths, wisdom and messages for humanity. Some of my list and you can agree or disagree, whatever floats your boat: Theodore Herzl, Jabotinsky, Begin, the Lubavitche Rebbe, Reagan, Thatcher.

Anyway, these are all humans of extraordinary consequence and no human of consequence ever has an easy ride so Mark Steyn easily and breezily goes on my list. Truth be told, I have considered him as such since the first time I read one of his columns, with that crazy Jewfro emoji-photo thingy in the National Post. I got out of the subway, called one of the editors that I knew back then and said WHO AND WHAT IS THAT AND FROM WHERE?????? I was hooked!

Since then, and over the years I've been truly blessed to have been able to make some rather modest contributions to Team Steyn in various ways and I'm so grateful for that opportunity. I feel so lucky indeed.

So congratulations once again to Mark Steyn on this most deserved honour. 

I am so very proud to know you!

May G-d bless and keep you and yours, and may you enjoy many healthy, joyful long and productive and successful years.

(If you want to support Mark Steyn in a tangible way, consider joining The Mark Steyn Club, or going on the inaugural Mark Steyn Club Cruise. Regretfully, I shall not be playing the role of Julie McCoy your cruise director, but there are so many awesome people going, I know it's going to be amazing.

Plus, Mark Steyn will be trapped, on a boat! Sorry did I say that out loud? OMG WHOOPS! GAH!)

"There Is Always Tomorrow", Dr. Jordan Peterson-Arguments Against Suicide

This is an incredible article on a very intelligent and giving human.

The reasons are solid, caring and wise.

This kind of frank talk about the human spirit and about the sanctity of life saves lives.

Read the whole thing. 

It reminds me of a piece of wisdom regarding suicide that my father once relayed to me.

He was speaking to a young woman during the course of a medical exam a number of years ago and somehow they got onto the topic of suicide. Her English was not great, but she summarized suicide in a very astute way that I've certainly never forgotten.

"Suicide," she said to him.

"It is a permanent solution to a temporary problem." 

"Trump's Critics Have Destroyed The Memory of the Holocaust"


Brendan O'Neill on what is essentially Holocaust denial:

‘This is how the Holocaust starts’, they keep saying. In truth, their Holocaust relativism, their Holocaust dilution, is how Holocaust denial starts. As one historical account puts it, ‘Relativising the Holocaust has been one of the classic techniques of some of those engaged in Holocaust denial’. They ‘minimise Nazi atrocities’ by ‘listing them alongside [others]’ (my emphasis). Holocaust relativism is always the beginning of Holocaust denial, one of the ugliest, most racist ideologies of our time."

Sweden Is Doomed


These Disgusting Holocaust Comparisons Are An Insult to Those Murdered.

My ancestors were incinerated by the Nazis. They went up in ash.

This is essentially a perverted form of Holocaust denial. If everything is the Holocaust, then nothing is, and nothing was.

This comparison is repulsive, and an insult to those who were murdered by the Nazis.

What Is the Smell of Love?

Another day came to its denouement.

"Can you get me a towel," he asked.

"Of course, sweetie," I said, heading over to the linen cupboard.

I picked out a big, fluffy white towel, and stopped for a moment to reflect on how nicely it was folded and walked toward the bathroom. I put my nose into the soft whiteness and inhaled the smell deeply.

"My son," I said.

"If you ever want to know what love smells like, this is the smell. A fresh towel for you."

He smiled and seemed mildly bemused but I could see he understood my point. Because for every fresh towel, laundered and smelling so lovely, stands a parent who got up every morning to go to work, to make the money to buy the things, and buy the food and prepare it, to buy the clothing, to make the lunch, to launder the garments and the linens, to pay for the soap, and the water and the power.

What is the smell of love?

The smell is the banana cake in the oven in the evening, prepared for the holy Sabbath. The smell travels deep into your heart and your soul, and the feeling, the feeling is sunshine when your child walks into the house smiling because the smell of love is everywhere, and your child grins, saying "banana cake?" even before hello. And your heart bursts.

What is the smell of love? 

The smell of love is tucking your children into bed and smelling their skin, and knowing that each of them has a different smell. The smell of clean pyjamas and shampoo, and soap against their sheets. It's the summer breeze wafting into an open window into the bedroom of the home you have built.

What is the smell of love? 

It's the smell of the coffee in the morning that you make for you and him. The happy smell that takes you back to your childhood home. In your mind, you can still see the yellow and white tiles, picture the telephone on the wall with the long, curly cord. You can still feel how sunny the kitchen was when you bounced down the stairs. The happy smell of love before things fell apart and two houses were made out of one previous home. The house is long gone but the smell of the essence of happy remains when you close your eyes, or before you drift to sleep.

What is the smell of love? 

The smell of love stays with you in your mind's eye long after the person or thing or the place is gone. It's the smell of the soup your grandmother made that cannot be recreated, even using the same ingredients. It's the smell of your mother's perfume that is somehow not the same as it was when you smelled on her, as a child, even when it's the same brand, the same package, the same name.

And so it was that evening, on that night, in my house that I taught my child what love smells like.

Melanie Philips: "Re-framing The Middle East Narrative"

There are some interesting points in here, but antisemitsm is not a ration thing and antisemites are not reasonable people. Antisemites don't care about facts.

Therefore, trying to reason someone out of their Jew-hatred is a fool's errand. The "proof" that Israel or the Jews are in the right makes no difference to the Jew-hater.

I believe in fighting anti-semites, not antisemitism.

But see what you think about all this.

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Is Absolutely Outstanding in Hostile, Beligerant Interview With Smarmy Jew-Hater of the BBC

This is amazing.

Absolutely amazing.

Look at how hostile this "journalist" is!

Interrupting, and his sneering Jew-hatred just oozes out of his questions. And Bibi doesn't even flinch at all. Look at his face! OMG! 

He is clearly thinking to himself "oh my gawwwd this guy is an utter anti-Israel moron", but stays respectful and cool-headed.

Watch as he calmly dumps mega truth bombs on the BBC guy who is just plain rude, and does not care at all about the disgusting and provocative interruptions and his ridiculously transparent virtue-signalling questions and interruptions.

This smarmy, obnoxious BBC douchebag seems totally devastated by the idea that Jews and Arabs can make peace without the Palestinians. You can just tell how much he hates Bibi and Israel. It's absolutely amazing how much hatred emanates out of his pores. He doesn't want to hear anything good about the Jews or about Israel.

Watch the whole thing.

Netanyahu, among his other many accomplishments, is in a media master class of his own.

It's working really well for a few of us, but that's just not enough anymore."

Daniel Greenfield: Pro-Trump Jews Are the Future of American Zionism

This is SO good. 

I'm loathe to excerpt because the whole thing is so amazing. 


But here's a small bit:

"Modern Zionism is split between positive aspirational Zionism and negative respectability Zionism."

"Positive Zionism was the movement of a cultural, religious and national minority to reclaim an independent identity and unleash the potential of the Jewish people. Negative Zionism was a reaction to anti-Semitism. And then, when Zionism became safe, it became a trophy of communal respectability.

"Those American Jews who continue to support Israel will be immune to media shaming. They won’t look for mainstream respectability. Instead they will become more Zionist because it is disreputable."

"Trump’s support for Israel is bad for its respectability. Respectable Jews would rather not have the embassy moved at all if Trump had to be the one to do it. They are critical of everything that Trump does because that’s the respectable thing to do. When they worry about being suspected of dual loyalty, they don’t mean to America and Israel, but to the progressive cause and to the Zionist reality."

"As long as the left controls the cultural high ground, it gets to define respectability. And so respectability invariably becomes an echo of its views. Only those who defy that echo chamber will remain pro-Israel."

"Zionism without chutzpah is unsustainable."

"We're America, Bitch."

I'm dying.

In Memory of Isaiah Berlin

Nice essay from Tablet. 

"The manner in which Berlin lived his life remains eminently, even achingly, attractive and a stirring example of how to compose one’s being in the world. Perhaps more than any other thinker of the 20th century, Berlin personified the contemplative life with an engagement with the world—an engaged connoisseurship with the arts coupled with a tireless pursuit of pleasure and friendship. Berlin took part in likely every interesting cultural phenomenon of his time, and personally engaged in the cultural politics that involved the occasional bout of espionage—like his assistance in getting the manuscript of Boris Pasternak’s banned novel Doctor Zhivago out of the Soviet Union."

"Berlin’s pluralism was most keenly connected to his thinking about the multiple selves of an individual with multiple contradictory allegiances—a truly British-Russian Jew."

"Haunted by childhood experiences of having to flee the Russian empire in the midst of the carnal violence wrought by the Bolshevik revolution, Berlin was also throughout the course of his long career a keen student of the character, internal processes, aesthetics, ideological structures, and cultural apparatus of totalitarian systems."

The Great Kurt Schlichter: There's Nothing "Narrow" About This Culture War Victory

"Bake My Cake" is toast. 

His point here is excellent: 

"So, this was a win, and not a narrow one. The government can’t target the religious because it hates them, and you can tell from the agonized howling of the liberals that they know this is a huge deal."

"No, Islamphobia Is Not the New Antisemitism"

Thank you.

" is wrong, and historically infantile, to speak about anti-Semitism and Islamophobia in the same breath. This isn’t to say that there is no anti-Muslim prejudice. Of course there is. Some people are deeply suspicious of Muslims and even view them as the despoilers of our apparently hitherto pristine European civilisation. And some Tories – very minor Tories – appear to have shared memes or articles that contain such views. That’s bad. But anti-Semitism is different."

"Anti-Semitism is older. It is far more entrenched in certain European circles. It is far more historically given to mass acts of violence, from pogroms to extermination. And – the really crucial bit – its re-emergence always tells us something important about the destabilisation of society and its descent once again into irrationalism, conspiracism, scapegoating, and fear of modernity. That is why the recent return of anti-Semitism, as a reformulated Socialism of Fools, leading to the casual spread of pseudo-radical conspiracy theories and even to horrific anti-Jewish violence and graffiti in countries like France, Belgium and Sweden, deserves our serious attention. Because this return of the old hatred speaks to an unhinging, a moral disarray, a crisis of reason. And yet if we focus too hard on this, and try to have a reckoning with it, the opinion-forming set will breathe down our necks: ‘And Muslims? What about them? You don’t care?’ It looks increasingly like a tactic of distraction."

"Anti-Muslim prejudice unquestionably exists, but Islamophobia is an invention."

"Toward A Judaism of Resistance"


"Antisemitism cannot be argued with, it can only be resisted. And we must resist. Not only because no one will do it for us, but because it will heal those wounds we have already suffered and give us the spiritual fortitude to ensure that there will be no further injuries. This far, we must say, it ends here."

"It is true, of course, that action is difficult, but we are a talented people, and capable of an intensity that is one of our most distinctive cultural traits. When we do something, we do it all the way, without equivocation. But time is pressing. As the sage put it, “The day is short, the work multiplies, the workers are lazy, the reward is great, and the master of the house is impatient.”

"What we so desperately require is a new militancy. A muscular Judaism. A Judaism of resistance. By any means necessary."

Meet Captain Elgen Long, The Last Living Saviour Of Yemenite Jewry

What a man, what a story. 

"With city lights dotting the night behind her, Dr. Dee Gaines, a neuropsychologist, sat for good reason—she’s very pregnant. But when Capt. Elgen Long, the last surviving member of a commercial flight crew that saved nearly 2,000 Jewish refugees stranded in Yemen almost 70 years ago, finished his speech, she felt compelled to stand."

"Her voice shook with emotion behind a microphone handed to her."

"My great-grandmother and my grandmother were on those planes. In Yemen, they couldn’t read. They couldn’t receive an education. Now, here I am, a doctor who has pursued higher education. And, because of you,” she said, rubbing her belly, “a fifth generation lives on.”

"Snow-haired and perpetually misty-eyed, Long, who turns 91 in August, bowed his head graciously in reply from a podium. Nearly 100 guests seated at tables applauded roundly in the backyard of a private home in Beverly Hills, California."

Yes, There's A Class Issue At Play Here

Really good observations from VDH, who pegs the class issue and gets it bang on. 

"What drives Trump’s critics nearly crazy is not any evidence that Trump has broken federal laws per se. Instead, their rub is that there are somehow no criminal statutes against a president boorishly acting “unpresidential” in his loud quest to supercharge the economy, while undoing the entire agenda of his predecessor, who was so dearly beloved by the media, universities, Hollywood, and identity-politics groups."

"Certainly, President Obama’s teleprompted speeches were mellifluous. As some sort of postmodern preacher, Obama often sermonized to Americans about the predetermined “arc of history” that purportedly bent all of us inescapably toward his own just moral version of the universe."

"In calm, ministerial tones, the progressive Obama sometimes slapped a puerile America’s wrists, with frequent admonitions to behave and to not act so illiberally. Or he frequently reminded us, with a frown, “that is not who we are.” Recall that Obama came into office promising that he would could lower the seas and cool the planet, with a generation of young like-mind activists who, we were lectured, were the ones we had all been waiting for. Now president emeritus Obama worries that perhaps his messianic appearance came too soon for us to fully appreciate his divinity."

"Despite Obama’s recent projection that his eight-year tenure was “scandal-free,” along with the reality that the media’s biased compliance sought to make such a startling fantasy true, the Obama administration was in many respects lawless. It will eventually rank as the most scandal-ridden administration since Warren G. Harding’s."

This Is So Stupid

Look, there are some truths that are just truths.

Men like to look at women. DUH.

And women prefer romance novels to male strippers, etc. DUH.

This is just so stupid. 

This is like when you are trying to fix someone up on a blind date and the guy says "what does she look like" and then the matchmaker says OH SHE HAS A WONDERFUL BUBBLY PERSONALITY.

That means fat.

And men don't like fat chicks. Sorry, it's the truth. Yes OF COURSE they are interested in your personality, and OF COURSE they want non-shrewish partners. But visuals are a big, big, big thing for men.

Miss America is an ogling contest. Jiggle jiggle, prance dance, blah blah. DUH.

This is another attack on men. Look, I never watch those pageants and contests, I really couldn't care less about them. But this seems to me another stab at regular, red blooded, heterosexual American men.

There will be ZERO viewers for a personality contest. This is so boring and stupid, and virtue-signally, it's probably a surefire, slow burnging way to bankrupt the competition so it will become obsolete within a few years.

Stop Playing This Game

This is a really sick and douchey thing to do to someone.

However, I believe that this is the ultimate and inevitable result of too many people being anonymous or pseudonymous in their social media posts or internet presence.

I am going to sound like a broken record player, but if you play by their rules, the stakes are higher. If you are scared about having your opinions known, and terrified that someone may "out" you, then the ideological hunters smell blood and you turn into prey.

If more people, as Mark Steyn and Aaayan Hirsi Ali always say "share the risk", then the risks go down for everyone.

If more people just spoke openly even about 1% of the contentious issues of the day, then none of this would be a big deal and things could be the way they ought to be, i.e yes, my neighbour/friend/colleague is a Trump supporter-SO WHAT?

The malevolent political left is not just interested in destroying the one individual with the "wrong" political opinion, they want that person's entire extended circle of care to go down as well. Nobody is immune. It doesn't matter if you are a card-carrying liberal with perfect liberal credentials. If you offend the mob, it's game over for you and yours in every possible way: economically, professionally, socially-the works.

That's why I characterize social media as the left's Manhattan Project.

Social media platforms have an extraordinary power to do good and an extraordinary power to do bad and even evil. Unfortunately, the really bad stories of destruction usually only go from left to right. These platforms can do very interesting and magical things, really remarkable and majestic stuff, but they are certainly very dangerous at the moment for people who have the "wrong" opinions. Why are so many people letting this happen?

This is another reason why individuals have to continually expand the breadth of 'acceptable' discourse in polite society. We need to bring people closer toward an understanding of freedom of speech, and make freedom of speech the default setting.

We need to always push back on the arbitrary, punitive and destructive "rules" that the political left has established and flip the game board right off the coffee table.

"Off the Plantation, Bro!"

Exhibit one. 

And two.
